We have an Active Directory domain which contains approximately 150 users.
Recently we had a new Manager (PaulM) join the company and created a user account for him.
If you right click on any user account in the domain and select properties the following window gives you the option to select the ' Organizational ' tab.
Under the Organizational tab there is an option to select a Managers name.
My problem is that if i go to the Organizational tab under any users account, and then select the change button under the Manager option, i cannot find the user account (PaulM) that i need to add.
Any ideas why PaulM cannot be found ?
